Vocal music programs well represented at state competition

Ponca City Now - February 4, 2016 12:27 pm

Directed by Chad Keilman, Ponca City High School and East Middle School vocal music programs were well represented at the State level in January.

Emari Shields, an 8th grade singer, and Brady Bookout, an 11th grade singer, were selected through a rigorous audition process to participate in two All-State Choirs.

Shields performed in the Junior High All-State Women’s Choir in Oklahoma City. This choir was sponsored by the Oklahoma Chapter of the American Choral Director’s Association (OklaCDA). Mr. Bookout participated in the All-OkMEA Mixed Choir in Tulsa in conjunction with the Oklahoma Music Educators Association Winter Conference.

Participation in these choirs is a distinct honor as only about 10 percent of the students who audition are selected.
